Personality Disorder training

The ADDRESS® Course for working with Personality Disorder.

The ADDRESS® Course is an APT-Accredited 3-day personality disorder training course from one of the UK's leading providers of mental health training. We bring the training to your own organisation, for maximum cost-effectiveness, and up to 15 people can attend. (Refresher course also available.)

Executive Summary:

Personality Disorder causes distress both to the individual concerned and those around them, yet is so poorly understood even by professionals that the term 'Personality Disorder' is sometimes used as little more than a term of abuse for patients who have consistently frustrated those who are trying to help them.

The ADDRESS® Course is designed to provide delegates with (a) a proper understanding of personality disorder and (b) professional and effective ways of responding to the most difficult behaviours that people with personality disorder produce, and (c) a clear and systematic sequence of steps to consistently deliver successful treatment interventions.

Written Feedback

Written Feedback.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below are just some of the great comments The ADDRESS® Course has received.

"Before the course my thoughts were that after working for 20 years, with patients who had PD, "what will I learn that I don't already know?" The answer is "A LOT". The course has been very helpful and the teaching style that the tutor has is brilliant. Very engaging, well-paced and very well presented."

"Extremely enjoyable and informative course ... I would highly recommend this course for anyone working within mental health."
